8:00 pm
neil: all right, well the president must know, this irs thing, far more terrorizing. welcome, everyone. i'm neil cavuto. whenever your views on the president once again pushing th so-called terrorist camp down, try as the mighty can i shut of these scandals, especially the growing irs mess. word right now that lerner has been put on administrative leave . more than benghazi in the white house talking points to more than the justice department's nipigon reporters, more average americans relate to tax targets than almost any other.
8:01 pm
this is the irs, an entity for now that far more americans fear , so it is so and will forever be. no matter how the president might want to change the narrative that things more terrorizing, the reality is for most americans this irs thing right about now is far, far, fa more taxing. i write because rattled the president never saw this one coming but was deliberately kep in the dark. to liz macdonald on why it is important to get to the beginning of this scandal and get it right. therein lies that scenes for a watergate-like scandal in which all parties wrong did pretty much everything wrong. >> it could require special prosecutors. we found to and democrats writing letters, pressuring the irs in 2012 and dating as far
8:02 pm
back as 2010. pressuring the irs commissioner to do something, stopping nonprofits from engaging in a - in any political activity, and then it tipped over. neil: making a general statemen about the tea party type groups. revco's the ones that they wanted to go after? >> here are the names. senator carl schumer. very upset. robo letter explaining that the irs is being passively.
8:03 pm
8:04 pm
neil: that congress was deeply devolved.
8:05 pm
then they were nowhere to be found when it all blew up. %-being too aggressive.m for it sounds very much like that. where is this going? >> it is interesting because there will be many hearings as the irs commissioner pleased th fed than we move toward being a more of formation of scandal after scandal after scandal. these hearings are important an are not a part of obstructing our system of government. they're very important as a par of our system of governing in the american people deserve answers and want to know who is responsible and that our government is responding appropriately to all of this. congress is right to review 3 these things. it is just a matter of getting to the bottom of it. >> you know those are some powerful democratic senators you mentioned, are they pushing for more hearings in the senate? >> they should be called in before the hearing, a special
8:06 pm
prosecutor should hold them accountable for letters they sent to irs, urging irs to act. they are not above the law. irs is not a denaturallure, not like a sewing machine, it is populated by ho human beings, is workers are getting cut, irs pay is getting cut, irs has been used as a political football, they should have said no congress, we're sending your letters right back to you but they didn't. neil: hadley, you would think someone at irs would say this not else call. >> that is in-- ethical. >> that is interesting, i have been thinking maybe there is something about working in irs that might attract a type of person that believes that big government is a good thing.
8:07 pm
we is to question how much money the people work at irs give to -- to. neil: i don't think that is a generally fair statement for irs workers, but i will say, when someone puts under pressure to do something that you know is wrong, we're fingering and targeting a group to lizzy's point, you are losing your morals. >> and there is nothing wrong with the irs clarifying a body of law that governs different organizations. neil: but you better clarify it for all. >> enforce it. >> this is happening during an an election season. so that is why there needs to be a special prosecutor. neil: a lot of committee hearings. >> the tea party said this is what happens with big government, and that is the irony, they were getting inves
8:08 pm
investigated for those same issues they brought up. neil: coming to. what did the president know, and when did he know it a damning defense for a president who once prized himself for being hands on, and now he is essentially hands off. glen hubbard on dangers of a president now playinn roll of popeye. what do you make of that? >> we have issues facing the country, these scandals distract us from the purpose issues, with the irs, are very troubling. >> you know, glen, where was this detachment, that president had with this management style he said he never had, he was very involved. in the details of the departments, and could name the names and all details, knew all of the dots and how they
8:09 pm
connected. then stuff hit the fan that was not the case, i'm not saying that every president should be on top of every detail, but the job is to big, and the government is so big, that is impossible, this is what happens when it gets this big. >> true that very large governments can be intrusive, but one thing irs scandal said we have a problem if our big tax agency is trying to discourage political competition, the country needs more ideas whether they come from the left, or right to compete for the attention of the american people, those those ideas is very bad. neil: what is it, it happens within agencies, but, where there is a group think that says it is okay, in other words we're getting orders or commands from
8:10 pm
senators and congressmen, that we should look at these groups, and no one figures or connects or bothers to connection they are conservative groups, this is not very fair and balanced in this targeting, in fact it is beagling well. where -- it is being illegal what happened? >> we do not know all of the facts as it happened. there are some people who directed the targets of specific groups and will have to wait to get the facts it is important that the tax law be neutral. neil: but, some whistle-blowers, could have connected the dots, but, someone must have said, did you notice they are all conservative groups, and they --
8:11 pm
those whistle-blowers, might come forward, for all i know, deals and arrangements have been made. >> we' neutrality. once we have a tax law that should apply equally to all people. the simpler the tax code we have the more efficient tax code we have the less chance we have of this kind of behavior. neil: you are right about that, glen hubbard thank you. >> min my pleasure. neil: tires of china hacking up, and ignoring our empty threats if they keep hacking us. we have a former ambassador, here to tell us, you keep hacking us, china, then we're going to hacu back.

8:15 pm
sauce of our success to u.s. that for us in terms of level of injury is 300 billion per year, if china, india, russia and others had a level of respect for intellectual property like we have in u.s. we would have added 2.1 million more jobs to our workforce, we have a choice to make we could keep managing status kuo until china tries to get their act together. or we could build muscle around this as a problem do something about it. neil: china -- saying weadock thiwe can dothis coup too. that is a slippery slope isn't
8:16 pm
it? >> better to create a regime, put out a report, a private commission with some best leaders, from national security, we spent a whole lear looking at this. there are this things we all the to be doing -- ought to be doing, and making cyber thret hurt. that is access to u.s. market, companies behind it, strengthening itc337 border seizure laws. so we can seize more aggressively. neil: but, we're always on defense. because they own so much of our debt. >> japan -- a lot of countries do. neil: i agree, there is no reason to be on defense, when it can be said china needs us just
8:17 pm
as more but we don't play that way. >> tis puts us in an offense of mode, what does china want over next many years, last 20 years they wanted to export in largest market, now they want to invest in u.s. market. we should have restricts against those companies have that have been behind or supporter of intellectual property theft. there are ways to do that aways with security and exchange commission to take companies that want to if public to use that as a cry teriasm there should be a way to look the siveious review process today is restricted to national security concerns. to add ip theft. neil: they will never react to that unless we follow-up. there are companies that feel, they get in their system, chinese, and steal stuff, and hack stuff, and cause a mess. i talked with a high-tech ceo,
8:18 pm
said, if he had the tit-for-tat ability, he does, he said there is nothing i want over there nothing i need, there is no secret i want. because, everything they are get they are copying there is no upside for me to hack back. >> getting in a tit-for-tat scenario is a lose-lose longer term. you want to chaage behavior, change command and control which is a coordinated effort. state owned enterprises, are able to work with government. in getting information. is that ises behavior. neil: all that fails. it all fails, we fight fire with fire? >> well, listen go to read the report, and there is a chapter 14 that really, is the fight fire with fire. neil: that is the chapter i was talking about, that is the one
